Aleena.

 

Your mom needs to fill out an I-864, as the petitioner,  You can followup as a co-sponsor with a separate I-864 or an I-864A combined with mom's income.  Using a separate I-864 tends to make the process run smoother.

The petitioner always files an I-864 even if they have no income or assets. So both you and your Mom will fill out I-864 forms.

If the income that is reported to the IRS as your income (work income, interest and investment accounts that report you as the recipient of earnings etc.) is sufficient then your husband does not need to fill out anything.

If you want to use income that is reported to the IRS as your husband's income then he will fill out an I-864A to pool his income with yours for the purpose of meeting the income requirement.

If Mom is living with you, then you can fill out an I-864A, but it is simpler to just use an I-864 if Mom has no income of her own.

The adventures continue

May you find what you want in life,
know it when you see it and
have the good luck to get it
... and keep it!!!

Aleena,

I am petitioning my parents so we're kind of in the same boat. I have already submitted the requirements to the NVC and am just now waiting for their response... if everything goes well, the next step will be an interview at USEM *fingers crossed*. :)
I don't work so I used my husband's income to meet the financial requirements. He filled out and signed I-864A. He is not a joint sponsor. A joint sponsor fills out and signs I-864. This can be confusing to new petitioners.

 

Both answers above are correct but in case you're still confused, I simplified what they said below  ;):

 

* If your mom is the petitioner/main sponsor, she needs to fill out and sign the I-864.

* Since your mom doesn't work, she will need to use someone else's income (like what I did) to meet the AOS eligibility.

* Assuming you work, does your income meet the poverty line based on your household size? If you're not sure what your household size is and not sure if your income meets the poverty line or not, tell us how many people are living in your house right now, if your mom is living with you, and if your sister will be living in your home too once she gets here.

* If your income meets or exceeds the poverty line and your mom is living with you, you can sign the I-864A to help her petition your sister. No need for your husband to help with the income eligibility.

* If your income DOES NOT meet the poverty line, your husband or any other person willing to help can step in as a joint sponsor. He/they will need to sign the I-864.
